Make Me a Pallet on the Floor (also recorded as Make Me a Pallet on your Floor, Make Me a Pallet and Pallet on the Floor) is a blues/jazz/folk song now considered as a standard. The song's origins are somewhat nebulous and can be traced back to the 19th century. Various versions of the lyrics were first published in 1911 in an academic journal of ethnomusicology. Some sources attribute the modern score to W. C. Handy who later modified into a song known as Atlanta Blues.
The song's first recordings are by Mississippi John Hurt and Bunk Johnson.
